Extend Exception Assistant RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     

    I would like to extend the Exception Assistant by my own hypertext link. I know I can do that using <Tip> tag with HelpID="http://xxx.yyy.zzz" attribute in it. My problem is that I need to post the exception message in that URL. Something like: http://xxx.yyy.zzz/?Divided+by+zero for Divided by zero exception. I suppose that it is not possible, so now I am thinking about <Action> tag possibilities. By default, there are two actions defined in the DefaultContent.xml file, where ActionCommand = "ViewDetail" and "AddPermission". Here comes my question: is that possible to create a custom action, which is supported by Exception Assistant, where I can reach the exception itself? If yes, please, could you share a piece of code on how to do that?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Unfortunately this is not possible.  We will consider this when we do our future planning for the Visual Studio debugger though.

  • I'm very interested in this as well - would like to be able to pass the exception details to my own "interpreter" and use the stack trace to pattern match against frequently encountered exceptions.
